As cliche as it is, yes this is a film I think everybody should see. This is basically a textbook example of how to make a film.

Forrest Gump (1994)
Say what you will about this film, but you cannot deny how much of an impact this film had. It inspired a whole generation of people, and that alone makes it worth seeing.

People who added this item 6193 Average listal rating (4224 ratings) 8.7 IMDB Rating 9.2
The Godfather (1972)
This is cheating, but I'm counting The Godfather Parts I and II as one movie.

This is the adventure film done to the absolute best. Indiana Jones is such an iconic character that passing up this movie is essentially not a choice.

The pinnacle of real time dramas.
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 4254 Average listal rating (2741 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.3
As much as I dislike the beginning and ending, I have to admit the special effects are impressive, even decades later, and the middle of the film is fascinating. Every Science Fiction film after 1968 owes everything to this film.

People who added this item 2779 Average listal rating (1746 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.3
Vertigo (1958)
This isn't my favorite Hitchcock film (that would be Rear Window) but this one is his best film bar none. It's perfectly crafted in every way, from the pacing, the characters and the plot.
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 5280 Average listal rating (3664 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.4
WALLยทE (2008)
garfield2710's rating:
People who added this item 3654 Average listal rating (2402 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8
This film has inspired so many other films, has so many unforgettable moments, characters and lines, that it's impossible to ignore it.
garfield2710's rating:

You know, people always say the 1001 films or 2001 or 3001 or whatever films to see before you die. But whose got that kind of time. So, I'm going to narrow it down. In alphabetical order, (that way I'm being fair) these are the 25 films that I think should be seen before you die (that's more reasonable than 1000 don't you.) And yes, some of these are films I haven't seen yet, but I'm not dead yet, so I still have time.
